Re: Low Serial # Vintage DW Kit - Pic's Inside

My first set of DW's were 1989's and the badge was silver and black. My second (and current set) was made in 1994 and have the gold and black badges like yours. I haven't seen this mentioned, but I...

Re: Sound guy rant

I know how you feel Larry. I played a battle of the bands at a club several years ago and they had a killer PA. 10,000 watts of Crown amps, Bag End speakers and a sound guy who couldn't do anything...

Re: A bit of good news to share

They are very wise for signing you up! I remember the drum head test videos and enjoyed them very much. You have the knack for tuning your drums well and I wouldn't doubt that your taste in cymbals...

Re: Heart Warming Help requierd with corrosion.

I work in the aluminum extrusion industry and we anodize. If the turtle wax chrome polish doesn't work, it may be possible to find a local anodizer that specializes in chrome plating that could...

Re: My new rock band

Congrats on the new band Larry! I love both of the songs you posted and neither one of them is really easy to play, but you played them excellently! The groove is solid on both tunes. Radar Love...

Re: Drummers and Motor Vehicles

That's funny. I also had a 91 CRX when I got my DW's. I could get all of my drums and hardware in it too. I did have to go with bags for my drums instead of hard shell cases though. The cases...

Re: Teeth - drum kits in your head

I'm glad I'm not the only one. I have done it for as long as I can remember. Drives my wife crazy!

Re: Getting "yelled" at onstage

I agree with the masses here. I make as many flubbers as any of my fellow band members and when we do its always addressed with a smile and a wink. Most of the time no one knows but us in the band....

Re: House drum kit

I feel your pain too brady! I went to a revival at another church that was "in between" drummers, but had a house kit. The pastor knew I played and asked me to sit in with the band. When I sat...

That would be a blast for sure!


I wouldn't mind jamming with Third Day. It's fairly easy, but I like it. Isreal Houghton would be another one, if I had the chops!

Re: Wraps or finished shell. What floats your boat & why.

I've only owned 3 kits and all of them have been wrapped. Like others have said, scratch resistance and durability makes wraps appealing, especially for gigging kits. What's sad is the wrap on my...

Re: refinishing chromed die cast rims, need painting advice

If they were aluminum I could get them anodized black for free at work. We're not set up to do steel though. If you could get hold of a sandblaster, that would strip the chrome off nicely and give...

Re: Thomas Lang Switches to DW

I have to disagree with this statement. My DW's project just fine, probably more than they need to.

I'm not the biggest Pearl fan in the world, but I've played and heard some Pearl kits that...

Re: Drumshell aging

I also apologize for hijacking your thread Larry. I'm not sure if Trick uses extruded shells or not, I don't think they do. It got me curious to see if there is a press big enough to make a 22"...

Re: Drumshell aging

Or you could ask me. I have 24 years experience in the aluminum extrusion industry. My plant has 7 age ovens. Two of them are brand new and are still being tweaked.

I'm hoping to build a drum...

Re: Drumshell aging

I'm not sure about wood, but I work in an aluminum extrusion factory and our age ovens run a 6 hour cycle @ 350 degrees to take 6063 alloy from T1 (soft and can be bent by hand) to T6 (hard and if...

Re: Ludwig Epic Downbeat Kit, which New Heads to fit ?

If you want heads that sound good with brushes then you would probably consider either some Remo Coated Ambassadors or Evans Coated G1's.

You will need coated heads for brushes.

This would be a...

Re: The greatest thing I have ever seen.

Who needs a whole band?! This guy has the whole package. Interesting set up. I kinda like his cymbal forest. I will have to admit that giant gong sounds killer!

Re: Pirating, us and the future.

LOL! That is so true. I remember Sinbad the comedian saying that when he was a kid all he had was an 8 track player and thats when all the songs had to be good because there wasn't a rewind button!...
